This was a good piece, but the examples used are poor examples. Most people expressing anti-Semitic views are not fired from their jobs. If that were true, the UN and the French government would have nobody working for them, not to mention every Arab country. Supporting a terrorist opposed to all Western democracies is not a proper role for someone in the news business. And Helen Thomas' comment was ignorant and hurtful to the 1,000,000+ Jews and Christians driven out of their homes in after the Arab armies unprovoked attack in 1948 failed to destroy the newly-founded Israel. A comment for which she later apologized.
By the way, actually she retired, she wasn't fired.
In IT, problems usually occur when someone posts a large number of nasty remarks about their employer or coworkers. I have a friend who used to vent regularly on Facebook about how stupid everyone (including me) around him was. While it was true in comparison -- he is brilliant -- he is considered too troublesome to hire permanently. Now he toils as a contractor, possibly for the rest of his career.
I know another case of woman who posed for "Men's magazines" to help pay for college. Some of the pictures have surfaced on-line. She feels trapped in her current job now because of them.
I think these or similar ones would have been clearer, more applicable examples than the ones used in the post.
